Take the Patriot Voices Made in the USA Christmas Challenge!

Did you know that a large percentage of our Christmas gift dollars go to manufacturing companies overseas? That’s right. Many of the gifts that end up under the Christmas tree are manufactured in other countries.

This Christmas season, millions of hard-working American families, who count on their jobs in the manufacturing sector are struggling to make ends meet.  Patriot Voices is committed to changing that! In support of the manufacturing and small business communities, we are launching our 3rd Annual Made in the USA Christmas Challenge. 

As a part of this effort, we are asking you during your holiday gift buying to make a concerted effort to buy as many items as possible that are “Made in the USA”.  Let’s support American companies and American-made products at the checkout counter. 

You can help turn things around this season by taking the Patriot Voices Made in the USA Christmas Challenge. 

When you head out shopping on Black Friday, take a look at your gift-giving budget and decide to purchase as many of your gifts as possible from US Manufacturers.  It’s that simple!

And be sure and support Small Business Saturday on November 28th to help the small business owners in your community!

Add your name to the challenge, and let’s make this a Red White and Blue Christmas!

Demand The Truth about Benghazi!

5,497 signatures

It’s been more than two years and we still don’t have answers about what happened in Benghazi, Libya when four brave Americans were killed on September 11, 2012. 

While the White House is doing its best to quietly and purposefully sweep this tragedy under the rug, we are Patriot Voices are refusing to back down.

We refuse to back down until former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton comes out of the dark and starts answering the important questions about who knew what and when.

Former Secretary of State Clinton asked "what difference, at this point, does it make?"  It makes a big difference.  The truth matters, and the victims' families as well as the American people deserve to know what happened.  Watch this video and help us demand that Hillary Clinton come clean on the following:

•         Who knew what and when?

•         Why were warnings ignored?

•         Was there a cover up?

•         Why were the talking points changed 12 times?

•         Why did her spokesperson delete critical facts regarding the attacks?

No Budget No Pay

The “No Budget, No Pay Act” would require members of Congress to forgo pay for every day after October 1 that they don’t adopt a budget and pass all of its spending bills.  Once members approved a spending plan and appropriated the money, they would start receiving paychecks again but couldn’t collect any retroactive pay.  The premise is simple: don’t do your job and you don’t get paid.

Sounds logical enough. When you are in the private sector, if you don’t do your job, you don’t get paid or worse you get fired.  We should expect the same from our elected officials.

Remarkably, Congress hasn’t passed a budget since 2009. The United States faces its most serious financial crisis and Senate Democrats could not be bothered to write a budget because budgets force people to make choices.  This has to change.  

In the longer term, we need a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution so the federal government has to balance its budget like our states do.  And in the short term, we need a new law to start the process of fiscal reform today. The “No Budget, No Pay Act” is a good start.

Sign the petition below to support the “No Budget, No Pay Act.”  You can also obtain contact information for your Senator and Member of Congress.  Please call or email them and tell them to vote for the “No Budget, No Pay Act” (S. 1981 and H.R. 3643).  You can access a sample letter here that you can cut, paste, add your own personalization and then email to your Member of Congress and Senator.

Americans develop a budget within their household.  We should be able to rely on our lawmakers to do the same for our nation.  This is a core constitutional and job responsibility.
